Notes / Commercial Description:
Originally brewed to celebrate the brewery’s 16th anniversary, and wildly popular as a seasonal release, Four Squared lives on in our year round lineup to quench the thirst of both the hop beginners and the most ardent hop heads. Lighter bodied and not too bitter, the balance of Four Squared leans heavily towards its dry hop component, a combination of Crystal, Amarillo and Mosaic hops that brings a brightness to the hop flavor and won't weigh you down. Save the resin and dank for your IPA, this beer is all about the tropical, juicy citrus that grabs you from the first sip. Dry and refreshing, bright and fruity, Four Squared keeps you coming back for more.

Cask. Beautiful pour, with clear gold body and full head and lacing. Lush, fruit forward hops, with moderate bitter backend. Solid feel, with dry close. Lovely.

Very refreshing beer. Sweet grapefruit rind on the nose, crisp/dry, great flavor, fruity,...goes down smooth and easy to drink. Its light for a pale ale. Good stuff...worth trying one if you haven't.

I poured this out of a bottle into a pint glass, not a really hard pour, but got a decent head of white with noticeable lacing. Good amount of bubbles in a cloudy pale gold beer. Mild aroma, with subtle citrus tones. Full bodied, sharp taste with a good amount of bite, noticeable bitterness in the delayed aftertaste. This is a good beer, all in all.

Poured from a can into a snifter. Very tasty! Cloudy yellow, nice head and lacing. Fragrant clean hop smell, a bit peppery. Taste is hoppy but clean and pleasant. Very nice pale ale.
